Amended and Restated Stock Purchase Agreement with Moishe Gubin
On October 24, 2011, OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (the Company) and Moishe Gubin entered into a stock purchase agreement (the Original Stock Purchase Agreement), which provided for the issuance and sale of 6,750,000 shares of Company common stock, $0.01 par value, to Mr. Gubin at a price of $0.40 per share.
On March 22, 2013, the Company and Moishe Gubin entered into an amended and restated stock purchase agreement which provides for the issuance and sale of 7,333,333 shares of Company common stock, $0.01 par value, to Mr. Gubin at a price of $0.30 per share (the Revised Stock Purchase Agreement). Mr. Gubin currently serves as a Chairman of the Company.
The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Revised Stock Purchase Agreement (the Gubin Transaction) is subject to certain conditions, including approval of the transaction by the shareholders of the Company, the Federal Reserve and the State of Florida Office of Financial Regulation.
If these conditions are fulfilled, the Company would receive proceeds from the transaction of $2,200,000. The agreement terminates if the conditions are not fulfilled and the closing does not occur by September 30, 2013.
The Company will also grant Mr. Gubin certain registration rights in connection with the purchase of the shares pursuant to the terms of a registration rights agreement to be entered into at the closing. The form of the registration rights agreement is identical to the form included as an exhibit to the Original Stock Purchase Agreement.
Substantially all the proceeds from the Gubin Transaction will be utilized by the Company to increase the capital of the Bank.
As of March 15, 2013, the Company had 31,511,201 outstanding shares of common stock, including 2,612,143 shares that were beneficially owned by Mr. Gubin. Upon the issuance of 7,333,333 additional shares of Companys common stock to Mr. Gubin, and assuming no other issuance of shares of Company common stock, Mr. Gubin would own approximately 9,945,476 shares of the Companys common stock, or 25.6% of the total outstanding shares.
The foregoing description of the Gubin Transaction and the terms of the Revised Stock Purchase Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Revised Stock Purchase Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this Report) and incorporated herein by reference.
